>> good morning, everyone, it's sunday, october 7th, i'm alisyn camerota. 30 days until election day and it's a whole new ball game. mitt romney up in the polls and riding high in the all important sunshine state. >> four years after presidency has not been able to get america back on track. he can't, he doesn't know how. i know how and i will get the job done. >> alisyn: so can romney keep up with the president in the cash race? we'll break down the numbers. >> speaking of campaign cash after the poor performance in the debate the president's off to hollywood. going to hollywood. is the president actually worried? the left is going to stream right? we report, you decide.
6:01 am
>> america, we have a new odd couple. >> (cheers) >> and what would you like for christmas, little boy? >> more from the debate between bill o'reilly and jon stewart, last night. whatever show that was. >> "fox & friends" begins right now. ♪ >> good saturday morning-- or sunday morning. >> that's close. well, it's still saturday somewhere. >> alisyn: in your brain. >> peter johnson, jr. in for dave briggs. >> nice to see you. >> alisyn: did you stay up and watch the debate? . no, i watched clips. >> on your twitter feed. thousands were trying to get in and the servers were down
6:02 am
and so many people were trying to log in and the servers were down. >> didn't have to pay-- >> the twitter feed. >> alisyn: and meanwhile, we are in the final stretch, it has been a long two years, bracing up to this exact moment. 30 days. >> can you believe that? >> no, i can't, until the election, and by the way, mitt romney sees a post debate bump in the polls and it's significant, prior to the debate. and mitt romney in a national poll was two points behind and now he's two points up. and s-49-47. >> rasmussen in 2008 had the most accurate polls from 2008. we're going to ask scott about it on the show later. we asked him the last time we had new polls about the national polls. you can look at swing state polls and get a really nugget of information, national, sort of a not maybe as interesting.
6:03 am
when you look at florida right now where the candidates, where mitt romney is campaigning north of orlando. look at this, florida, 49% right now to 47%, that's big bump from where president obama was leading mitt romney in the all important swing state. >> yeah, governor romney and his wife were down in florida yesterday campaigning hard and getting a pretty good reception. let's look at ann romney with some of the voters yesterday. >> every year, the median income in america-- >> and you are a tremendous asset to your husband. >> i appreciate that. you know, i-- we're doing everything we can, my boys, myself just out there working as hard as we can. >> well, i really believe that your husband is going to be-- i think they will have as much as ronald reagan did, he's going to do bet. >> i felt that for a long time. >> well, the wives of course
6:04 am
in in race have high approval rating and favor ann romney and favor michelle obama, the wives are a huge asset. >> and president obama was off the campaign trail yesterday and finally celebrating his wedding anniversary, as you know fell on the night of the debate. so mitt romney was unencumbered on the campaign trail. there was no response that the president could give to anything that mitt romney did. and mitt romney seemed to energize after the debate. >> every year the median income has gone down, 4,300 a family ab with average family income around 50,000 bucks, that hurts. gasoline prices are up twice what they used to be. these are tough years for the middle class and for the poor in america. and if we calculate it, by the way, our unemployment rate in a way that was consistent with the way it was calculated when he came into office, be a different number. if the number of people shall the percentage of the american
6:05 am
population in the work force were the same today as the day he was elected, unemployment rate would be above 11%, this is inexcusable in a nation so prosperous of ours, that four years of a presidency has not been able to get america back on track. he can't, he doesn't know now, i know now and i'll get the job done. >> a bet that most of the other states will be ignored. only eight states in the rest of these 30 days, that's it because that's where the candidates are going to have to put down their stakes and mitt romney needs to win florida. if he loses florida, that means he needs to win every other swing state in a sweep which seems highly unlikely, although if you look at the polls, the same thing goes for ohio right now. if mitt romney loses ohio he has to win every other swing state. and no president of course, no republican has ever would be won the presidency without wingoo and there is a new poll from rasmussen, a 1 point lead within the margin of error for
6:06 am
president obama. >> and he is an obviously seeing the results of a successful debate the other night. and look at the poll in the state of virginia, it's dead heat there as well. 49% romney, 48% the president. so, obviously, governor romney has seen a big leap in a few states, already, as a result of the bump that he's seen. >> alisyn: by the way, you should stick around the until the nine o'clock hour of our program today because scott rasmussen will be here to unveil the newest polls, first polls taken entirely since the debate. some of the polls we've been showing you, two-thirds of those voters polled were interviewed post debate and one third was pre-debate. >> it's like a bakery, these are the freshest polls out of the oven. >> alisyn: not rolls, polls. >> the sinna buns of the polls. >> and we'll see how they play out. we see the papers and headlines and today on our
6:07 am
show we'll show you the polls later. >> alisyn: hot off the presses. campaign cash, very interesting, at this 11th hour of the campaign. so, mitt romney has had a post debate spike in terms of his fund raiding, able to raise 12 million dollars online in just 48 hours after the debate. >> you're seeing a lot of this in the poll, republican enthusiasm gap, a lot of polls reflecting the new enthusiasm republicans waited until the debate to see which guy was going to show up. yes, you see the campaign donations flowing into the campaign. although the president and the democrats though are not far behind. >> don't feel sorry for them. wait until you hear this number. >> this number will blow your mind. 181 million dollars, what the president's campaign raked in in september, a brand new record. >> unbelievable. it is mind blowing, they said in a tweet yesterday that they
6:08 am
got about 1.8 million new contributors and of that about 600,000 had never given before to the obama campaign either in 2012, or in 2008. so they're saying a net of 600,000 new contributors in september alone. i don't know how you achieve a number like that. >> alisyn: they say grass roots, low budget-- the right word -- not big rollers, and given. >> small rollers like you and me. >> alisyn: and however, much of the president's fund raising has come from hollywood and those big rollers and he's going there tonight for a star-studded celebrity concert to try to reassure those heavy rollers that he's still in. >> nokia theater and then
6:09 am
$25,000 a plate at a wolfgang puck restaurant. >> yes, and katy perry, is that the concert, she's putting on the big concert. >> alisyn: and stevie wonder. >> big ticket guys and some people not happy, california. if there were any other state dealer with like $6 gas prices it probably wouldn't bode well for the president flying in there and snarling up traffic before a concert. the gas stations are saying we're out of gas. >> it's an all-time high. >> $6. unbelievable. >> alisyn: and we have a fox news alert. two american troops, special operations in the province saturday after a fire fight with insurgents. and brings the number of u.s. troops killed in afghanistan this year to nearly 260. two afghan police officers were killed in two separate bombings in other after began

6:17 am
the mistakes his boss made last week, he needs to seem engaged. he needs to answer those hard questions without being defensive and so, they both have challenges going in, but it should ab really great debate. >> clayton: it's interesting if you look back as a historian, 2008 and beyond. vice-president biden, then candidate biden crushed hillary clinton and barack obama in the debates. he was the one winning the debates. >> he's a very strong debater. i'm sure that that's the biden that will show up this week, but part of the problem that a president and a vice-president faces is that they can be insulated very easily. they speak to crowds that adore them. >> right. >> they aren't orphanage challenged with tough questions from reporters as we've seen lately and i think that's a big challenge for biden this time around. >> historically the vice-president debates, i
6:18 am
think, vealyielded a lot more entertaining moment and some think they'll stand out more. >> lloyd benson and dan quayle, 2002008. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. (cheer (cheers) >> that was a fierce moment. >> that was a strong zinger and perhaps the most memorable moment from the vice-presidential debate and often, a vice-presidential debate is about assurance. can the second person on the ticket become president and step in if need be. you've got to remember in 1988 who was president? ronald reagan. lloyd benson had been in the senate 17 years, dan quayle, 7 years, that was about gravitas and the senior statesman versus the young new guy upstart. this time it's different because barack obama was in his 40's when he became president and even though joe
6:19 am
biden is three decades older than paul ryan, that issue is muted a little bit. >> clayton: interestingly in 2008. then candidate biden, vice-presidential nominee at the time had a walk a delicate balance with sarah palin. he had to be respectful of her on the stage and strong a lot of people thought it was a tie at theened of the debate wherever you stand on it want matter, but here is a clip from that, we'll get you to respond to that moment. >> you voted for the war and now you oppose the war, you're one who says, as so many politicians do, i was for it before i was against it or vice versa, americans are craving straight talk. hey, if you voted for it, tell us why you voted for it and you you also said that barack obama was not ready to be command ner chief and i know again you opposed the move he made to try it cut off funding for the troops and i roux inspect that for you, i don't know how you can defend that

6:25 am
be bringing veterans and navy seals to ensure that over vote is counted properly and that the people who should vote are voting? >> well, first of all, the special operations people, not just seals, and they're retired and former, let's make sure everyone understands this, are part of a larger program to monitor polls, provide poll workers, which as you probably know, there are fewer of today than there were a couple of decades ago when that was still done by the greatest generation and silent generation people now getting too old to do it. but the plan for the special operators is that in areas where we've seen voter intimidation in the past, we felt that those folks would be particularly good at observing, reporting, taking videos and being invisible while doing that. >> and we've gotten to the point now where we have enough
6:26 am
that we believe we'll have almost every poll in the country where there has been intimidation alleged in the past to watch. >> and ben, ben, tell us exactly what they will look like at the polls. because i'm sure that some critics could say that having a group of navy seals or special ops guys at the polls could be construed at a different form of voter intimidation. >> well, we're very, very careful and very sensitive to that, and don't want to be part of the problem and the idea is that, they will be as invisible and inconspicuous as possible. the idea is to observe and report, not to become involved at the polls. >> so, the idea is, it's the former navy seals and veterans, it's the not involving intimidation, it's not trying it suppress votes, it's trying to ensure that people that want to vote have the right to vote and reporting inactsies or
6:27 am
irregularities at the poll. the problem is there are active service duty people that are not signing up to vote across the country. tell us what you can do for that issue. >> as you know, there's been a problem this year, and the dod fell down, didn't get the voter assistance offices up and running especially in overseas bases and registration is way down with our military. we've launched a campaign to let our you overseas military personnel know they can vote using the federal write-in backup ballot which all states must accept now and many states accept by e-mail and fax and we have a pretty successful, active e-mail campaign going on now to let all of our troops know how to vote, if for some reason we don't get the ballot.

whole department that was dedicated to creating and eventing gadgets and some of them were fantastic. the problem that we had was certainly, i think some of us were a little bit cursed was that many of them wouldn't actually work when we had he' go to the places where we wanted them to work. a running joke at mi-6 and the gadgets were james bond. >> alisyn: let's talk about how you rolled when were you a spy. did you have an aston martin that you drove around in? >> top-notch transportation? >> no, i didn't. actually for the most part i had a fiat, so it wasn't quite the same. >> alisyn: no. >> come on. >> alisyn: you did not have to drive in a pinto? >> i lived in london at the time i think pinto is more practical than an aston martin. >> clayton: what about a great sound track like this? ♪
6:48 am
>> oh. such a great sound track. so, there's no music that plays everywhere you go? >> again, again, no, although that said, most of my meetings with foreign spies, assets were in hotels, so my experience was rather more that it was hotel music, elevator type music, the four seasons, that kind of stuff. it wasn't quite inspiring james bond sound track. >> alisyn: let's get to the serious stuff. obviously, james bond did have a license to kill. that was part of his motto and license to kill and you must have as well. >> clayton: it's interesting because we were looking at the numbers published about james bond. since 1962, james bond killed 352 people on the screen. is this something that happens every day? that seems like a person a day? >> that's quite a lot, but in
6:49 am
terms of license to kill the reality is, as a spy, everything do you overseas is illegal, so, having a license would actually be meaningless because of course you're at the mercy in of the lawmakers in the country you're operating. it would have been quite good to have a license to sort of show off to people, but in reality wouldn't much work at all. >> clayton: i'm curious from a spy's perspective, james bond being iconic member of the british family, if you will, are you conscious of that image when you're in the spy service or sort of look at each other joke, make jokes internally about being james bond. >> certainly i was never conscious of james bond when i was a spy. i mean, that was just like everyone else, in terms of the offices we enjoyed a good escapist thriller or a good movie and most of us liked the bond movies, i'm a big fan, but no, when i was going about
6:50 am
doing nigh job he wasn't in my mind at all. >> alisyn: the book can let people know what it's really like to be a spy. a spy catcher novel. matthew dunn, thank you for coming in and giving us insight into the world. >> my pleasure. >> clayton: i can't wait to see the new bond film and adele is doing the sound track. and "skyfall" coming out-- i'll update you on twitter. >> alisyn: and not going away, some parts of the country could see $5 gas. where were we four years ago? let's take a look at the number. >> clayton: and as the presidential election draws near, where does the catholic vote fall? we'll ask father jonathan morris, live from rome next. ♪

presidential candidate who has won the popular vote has also won the catholic vote. >> alisyn: and across the country, dioces are issuing guides to look at the issue at play in this election. >> clayton: from rome, to break down the issues of religion, jonathan morris. nice to see you this morning. what is in these guides? >> well, first of all, i wish you guys were here. we should be-- >> so do we. >> clayton: we should be here in rome. >> peter: i've been with you, father, we've had a great time. >> i know, now you let me come alone. and in any case, these voters guides are going down moral issues and lining up and these are the two candidates right now for the presidential election, and these are some of the issues and in many of these guides ten issues are mentioned and including, some examples right now we see on the screen, from abortion, death penalty, educational
6:55 am
choice, embryonic stem cell research, freedom of religion, et cetera. what is missing in some of the guides, something that the bishops as a whole, in the new introduction to faithful citizenship, i'm going to link on my facebook and on my twitter afterwards. which says, you know what? not all moral issues are equally heavy or weighty. some are more important than others. and let me give you an example. if there was a candidate in the the united states, and there was a favor of institutional racism and what if there was excellence on so many other issues, would we be able to vote for him or her? the answer is no, but the bishops have said an as whole and the new introduction put out last november to the voters guide or the faithful citizenship document. when he we come to issues like abortion, euthanasia, and embryonic stem cell research, traditional understanding of marriage, these are
6:56 am
nonnegotiatable, these are already completely-- >> and if we've got a couple, couple one among many other because there's been confusion on this issue of what priests and ministers are saying from the pulpit and-- >> and here, that's okay. and i think i lost you guys. >> peter: all right. father morris. >> clayton: we've had some satellite issues with his hearing ability. >> peter: and the important issue is, from what i understand, what i've seen, this is not an opportunity for the bishops to tell people you vote for obama, you vote for romney, for this senator, this congress people. i think it's a faith-based. >> alisyn: and i also think at that tells voters what the candidates' views are on the issues. >> clayton: there's a lot-- >> it's not endorsements, basically. >> clayton: from the catholic church we heard some controversy as related to the health care law earlier this year and that has not been necessarily resolved, but as you take a look, i believe, do
6:57 am
we have the pew poll that we can show you, this is the latest catholic pew poll and relates to catholic voters and president obama right now, 54% for mitt romney, 39%. so a sizable lead in the pew research. >> peter: and answers the question, it's not a monolithic group, it's tightening in this way. >> clayton: and thank you to father jonathan morris. >> alisyn: and i think he was-- some in the left are calling mitt romney a liar after wednesday's first presidential debate. and could that hurt democrats actually? our political panel is going to weigh in. >> peter: then, amazing video, a race car driver loses control. if you think it looks bad from here, wait until you see it from behind the wheel. wow.

7:02 am
debate performance on wednesday night and he got that. i mean, this jobs number that came out on friday, with that 7.8% in his saturday morning radio address, which turned into a youtube address, he turns the clock back a little bit and blames president bush a little bit and says we've got good numbers, listen. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past two and a half years and on friday, we learned that the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since i took office. more americans are entering the work force. more americans are getting jobs. >> that was president obama, obviously, on the saturday radio address, but he did take yesterday off the campaign trail to celebrate his anniversary. and as you know, it fell on the night of the debate and it's interesting that he would take the day off. you could postpone your anniversary until 31 days from now, but he had-- >> that's good, you want a

7:04 am
>> so question about the numbers, do you care when the number comes out, 7.8%, did you talk about it with your neighbors? do you care? and many pundits say no, that's not how people vote. when they go to the polls they vote their feelings, you know, they know if their neighbor lost their job and know if gas prices are currently through the roof or know if they put can't put food on the table and gas prices skyrocketing. january 20th of 2009 to today, out in california we're getting word upwards of $6 a gallon for gasoline and gas stations running out and people lined up trying to get gasoline out there. and this is not good news. >> and governor huckabee said that those are the things that obviously mean so much more to voters and whether or not the actual unemployment number fluctuates. >> they're looking at gas prices. when they squeeze that handle on the pump, they know they're paying nearly 4 and 5 bucks a gallon and when they get the
7:05 am
paycheck they know it's less than it used to be they know that food prices are up and costs more to go to school and kids who just got out of college are living in the basement and they want to get rid of them, that's just fact. >> there you go, $5.84 out in california. if that happened in any other state, it is california after all, a traditionally blue state and president obama flying in for a fund raidser, and you've-- you're going to snarl up traffic and-- the metrics for the president on median income and gases on inflation in terms of what it's costing to live and they say, why is the election so close? and historically it's in the past, if someone was so far behind the numbers, and they believed that it'd be a little more of a blowout. >> and the swing state polls, we'll have the scott rasmussen, the fresh polls that have been conducted since
7:06 am
that debate. and we should mention, rasmussen polls always are traditionally, in 2008 had been the most accurate in the election. >> alisyn: that's going to be breaking news in the nine o'clock hour and stick around for that. >> peter: we haven't seen those yet and i'm looking forward to. >> alisyn: headline and a fox news alert. three people are hurt after a train collided with a truck that stalled on the track, in newell near santa clarita. those three people were taken to the hospital and injuries are said to be minor. more than 200 on the commuter train before the crash. the truck driver was able to jump out before impact. another emergency landing for an american airlines flight. had a problem with the wings flap which controls the speed of the plane. the pilot landed safely at lax and no one was hurt. this problem nearly a week after americans grounded dozens of planes because the seats coming loose on this flight. you have to see the video.

the new polls. >> stylistically he had a rough night, but mitt romney was making challenging comments. >> we've got two presidential debates coming up and vice-presidential debate and so many things up in the month. we need to be patient in the polls. >> clayton: a same changer? >> the headline, mitt's alive and he did something reaganesque, changed things by being himself and able to do that in large part because after mistake from the obama campaign, spending 150 million dollars to paint him as the devil incarnate and essentially mitt needed to show up and not be the devil in order to be a game change, he did much, much more. >> clayton: during the debate he moderated his position and mitt romney during the primary season trying to say he was severely conservative and
7:14 am
suddenly on stage he moderated his position on a the lot of things. did that sort of come back to bite the obama campaign who spent millions and millions of dollars to paint him as a far right wing guy and he's not. >> he's not far right wing guy not an extremist, i didn't feel as a conservative that he moderated from his position, but i think he just highlighted he's a guy who likes to get things done. he dealt with 87% democratic legislation in massachusetts and a guy that had to sit down with people on opposing sides of the aisle we need to fix things in the education, in economy and and let's do it. as opposed to the president who shoved obamacare down our throats and doesn't like to sit down and negotiate and who is out there saying if i can't get it done my way, not going to get done. a great contrast. >> that's very unfair. president obama and john boehner tried to work out a deal. and the tea party said absolutely not. couldn't get a fair deal done
7:15 am
last year, but let's talk about where the president is right now. the president is now looking at a situation where unemployment, 7.8%, and i know some republicans are saying the numbers are not right, but if the numbers were going up, they'd say the numbers are right. the unemployment is going down and we're moving in the right direction, if americans feel they're moving in the right direction, he's going to do well. >> in some the swing states, including ohio, that number had been lower than the national average, and that it seems that president obama going into ohio he's been up by a significant margin though with mitt romney closing the gap there. >> look, it's pretty sad state of affairs after four years for people to be excited about 7.8 unemployment. >> clayton: that's the reality of the situation. >> and if we use the same amount of participation in the work force, it would be at 11%. americans feel this every day, we don't need to have a candidate tell us what our lives are like, but even in ohio after obama spent at least 150 million in ads he's still tied with romney. so it's not gotten him
7:16 am
anything and i think that's a significant indicator. now we've watched surge in florida, iowa and heading in colorado now. >> clayton: can we make too much of the polls? some of the headlines, really that these republicans in these swing states are now coalescing around mitt romney and the independents remaining the same for president obama, that's unchanged, but it's now that republican enthusiasm gap that wasn't there before. they saw wednesday night. they said, wait a minute, this is a guy i could get behind. are these just republicans showing up at the polls. >> no, rasmussen has independents surging for mitt romney and i think that's chi. if you look the at a state like florida, also, you have to realize that the medi-scare tactics haven't worked. in ohio coal liners have suffered under the epa under barack obama. and pocket book issues, economy, jobs is number one across the board, but each state has its own individual
7:17 am
priorities as well and barack obama has failed on all counts there as well. >> clayton: brian, the final word on ground game. it's interesting in these states, people are reporting-- political reporters talking about florida and a ground game, than president obama does and ohio getting out the vote, early, early, bigger assets for president obama. >> look at iowa and absentee ballots and ohio early voting and democrats have done well on the ground game and tight race is going to be strong for barack obama. and it's tough to be an incumbent. with the economy turning around and foreign policy, it's tough for mitt romney to try to beat president obama. >> clayton: we'll leave it there and our political panel will stick around for this. first, they're calling him a felon and then a liar. the race for the white house reached a new low? we'll report and you decide. and new robbers are coming

7:22 am
romney. here is what communications director woodhouse had to say. >> plenty of people pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and was last night. i mean, if he was talking, he was speaking last night, he was lying. and look, mitt romney had a good night, but you know, even a, you know, blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> are these dirty attacks, calling mitt romney a liar. is it a good idea for the democrats. we're back with our panel. brian some suggest this is classless to come and attack mitt romney for lying when the president didn't seen prepared and shell shocked and that's the response. he was so shell shocked that mitt romney was lying that he didn't know how to respond. >> and mitt romney's facts were tricky, we don't have time for that. let's include john sununu, romney's surrogate who said that obama is lazy,
7:23 am
incompetent. has no idea what's going on. on both sides comments being made and let's not make this one-sided when you're talking about it. >> clayton: is that fair, tammy? >> americans and i think the tea party is a good example of this want to be told the truth. we have impressions of these guys and americans are going to make up their own mind and we know that politicians haven't been telling the truth. and the problem, came up in the first debate. the portrayal of mitt romney is not the impression that other people are getting. the continuing attacks on their end. implants john sununu and not romney saying it. in that instance a tough road and americans realize he wasn't honest with them about mitt romney in the first place and seems like sour grapes because they know who won the debate. one. things that came up. is the 5 trillion dollars and this 5 trillion dollar tax cut back and forth. in the obama camp tried to paint it as a lie. listen, during the debate. >> governor romney's central
7:24 am
economic plan calls for a five trillion dollar tax cut. a 5 trillion dollar tax cut. if you believe that we can cut taxes by 5 trillion dollars, you don't come close to paying for 5 trillion dollars in tax cuts and two trillion in additional military speck. >> let me repeat what i said. i'm not in favor of a 5 trillion dollar tax cut, that he not my plan, my plan is not to put-- >> and there's back checking what that means now. >> mitt romney is going to need to get very, very specific. people are tired of ambu get and he did talk about the deductions and more detail. he's going to need to be prepared with barack obama to come out with this stuff. independent voters are listening. generally independent voters do not like muscling from left to right and right to left. what they're interested in it is solutions. if president obama is going to pick on mitt romney he better well have some forward thinking and explain what he's going to do differently the
7:25 am
next four years to make him wore thif of getting reelected. if they are the same policies that 114,000 jobs a month is supposed to be a good thing, that's a failure. >> clayton: and the mitt romney campaign, brian, had to come out and correct something mitt romney said on the debate and pre-existing conditions and he had to correct them and the obama campaign saying he lied during the debate in front of a 65 million audience his campaign has to quietly correct it. >> i agree with a lot of of your points, both have to come out and be very clear on some specifics. the concern is that mitt romney says he's going to cut taxes for the middle class and not cut taxes for the wealthiest americans, it's completely false when you look at his plan. >> can i just add-- >> i think when you talk about that then mentioned pre-existing conditions and that's not true and you look and saying, wait a minute, can we trust mitt romney? he's laying out a number of issues, winning the debate
7:26 am
stylistically and jim lehrer did not moderate. those are the facts as we know it. if you're channinging the plan, let knauss that. >> i find is fascinating, your guy has been president for four years. >> sure. >> and the conversation is trying to get specifics from him. mitt romney just a couple of weeks ago started getting even the national security briefings. here you've got a man who's got a book with 59 points about what he wants to do and the argument is between the regular civilian guy who is a business man about what's going to do to save the country and a president who's been in the office for four years, and we're still trying-- even we still want specifics from the president of the united states. and that's what americans are realizing. mitt romney showed them that he can be president, he's a viable alternative, and until you get into that office, which mom any does not have that benefit, you're going to have to-- and who is going to be in the senate helping to run the country with you, you're going
7:27 am
to need to be flexible. >> clayton: tammy raises good points. and team obama says we want specifics and called them out during the debate we still want specifics. >> is that fair or the opposite. >> it's not fair because barack obama-- this is a man who hasn't pressed the democrat senate to put forth a budget. >> we znt had a budget. >> so it's absurd to say that. do i believe that mitt romney needs to off specifics? i do. that's what will inspire confidence in voters. i think the more information they have with respect to education, with respect to the economy and respect to how, how you're going to implement the changes i think the better, but for barack obama who hasn't offered any specifics at all is a ridiculous claim. >> i don't think that's necessarily true, for americans making $250,000 or less and he had a fair and balanced proechd. >> he's not cutting taxes, he's raising via obamacare and a ton of taxes on the middle
7:28 am
class. >> we neat fact checks and nonpartisan, says that mitt romney's numbers are not true and if they're making that-- >> cbo said what about obamacare, it's going to raise taxes on the middle class. you've got conflicting statements. >> 30 days left. can you keep the passion going? >> i can. >> and great to see you this morning. >> thank you. >> coming up on the show, everything you need to impersonate a new york city firefighter for sale on ebay and guess what it's all legal. the alarming details about that straight ahead and it's an age old discipline, make a mistake on a field, football field and take a lap, run a lap. you screwed up. one state says that running is corporal punishment. good means i don't have to do it anymore. ♪

7:45 am
pick switch he was going to be spanked and even in the left in the media, acknowledged it and changed tact, he won, but think he lied, or had a cheat sheet. and if mitt romney had a chance to make his case as opposed to letting the media create a case for him. and this is directly at young people and could cause relief for young people in the united states today. are you listening? i don't know. a generation in which i've been raised peter who always want, we've talked about this, more free crap and people who instead of voting for things like a financial, a visible economy, more job growth, they will he' vote for things like free birth control and cell phones. so it's tough to see how they react to the debate. my guess they're going to vote with the guy who they think gives them more free crap and saves big bird and that would be barack obama. >> peter: mitt romney was

8:14 am
and you don't want to have two bad debates in a row. i don't think that biden will. you know, it's interesting, i interviewed paul ryan last week and talked to him about, about biden and i said what do you think of biden? you've been studying him obviously and prepping for him. he said, look, he's a very experienced guy and been in this for 40 years and you're not going to throw him off his game. and i said, yeah, how about the gaffes? he says he makes those in exte extempraneous on the stump and i don't think that he was spinning me, a strong determined biden. what's fascinating is the contrast between these guys, an old school liberal in the case of biden and a young gun conservative in the case of paul ryan and i mean, these guys couldn't be further apart in their outlook on the government and what they think are the solutions for the
8:15 am
country over the next four years. >> and the way they speak, too, right, guys? and paul ryan we talking to huckabee, does paul ryan run the risk of being too wonky and using charts and graphs and getting buried in the numbers, the weeds so to speak? >> i don't think so. i mean, my experience with him both interviewing him here on the show and also just in knowing him for a number of years, he understands the big themes. i don't think he's going to get down into baselines and things like that. having said that, you know, he's -- he has proposed a number of budgets with very he tough budget cuts offer the years that in fact romney has walked away from, you can be sure that biden is going to try to hold him accountable for those things even though romney is not proposing them and to try to portray ryan as kind of out of touch conservative extremist. so it's going to be interesting to see how he handles some of his own proposals no longer the proposals of the romney team.
8:16 am
>> and chris apro poe of what you're saying, and few are stronger than joe biden knows how to connect with a crowd and you pointed out his ratings during the convention were extremely high. do you think he's going to try and get congressman ryan to commit to positions that may be antithetical opposite to what mitt romney is saying? is he going to try to paint romney with what ryan says at this debate, on medicare, medicaid and on issues like at that? >> absolutely. what he's-- what i'm sure he'll say as well. now romney is talking a moderate game and let's look what you proposed two years ago or four years ago, for instance, ryan's plan, he also took 716 billion dollars out of medicare, and one of the main attack points na romney is making against obama and romney would put that 716 billion dollars back. but, you can be sure that biden is going to say, well in your own budget you were
8:17 am
taking the 716 out. so he's going to try to paint, you're exactly right, peter, paint romney with some of ryan's positions not to say they were extreme, but more conservative and more hide line. >> chris, tell us what's coming up on your show today. >> we will have our own debate, alisyn. we are going to have two interesting figures, martin o'mally the governor of maryland and a lot of people think win or lose for obama, a possible presidential candidate for the democrats in 2016 against kelly ayotte, one of the rising stars in the republican party, the senator from the key swing state of new hampshire, and then we're going to have a debate guru, bret o'donnell, may not have heard of him, but seen his work, one of the campaign debate coaches for 2004 and mccain in 2008. and mitt romney before the florida primary, florida debate, obliterated newt gingrich and we'll get him to give tricks of the trade, what they do right or wrong and
8:18 am
what they need to do differently next time. >> very good. tune into fox news sunday, thanks, chris. >> thanks, cries. >> clayton: coming up on the show, speaking of paul ryan, one voter asked him to be more specific with his plans. >> i heard you, was it sunday when you were on fox, and you didn't answer his question about how we're going to-- you know, what are your plans. >> yeah, no, look-- >> she says her words have now been twisted by the obama administration and she's here to set the record state. >> peter: then a scarlet letter for military veteran who was teaching a class on radical islam. is political correctness to blame for his problem? we report, you decide. well, if it isn't mr. margin. mr. margin? don't be modest, bob. you found a better way to pack a bowling ball. that was ups. and who called ups? you did, bob. i just asked a question. it takes a long time to pack a bowling ball. the last guy pitched more ball packers. but you... you consulted ups.

8:23 am
instructive material that may be considered by of offensive to muslim and slam and demanded that all administrators using those trading materials should be punished. as a result of that in may of this year, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general dempsey, sitting alongside secretary of defense, leon panetta, publicly excoriated lt. colonel matthew dooley, saying that this teaching of this course was offensive, was unprofessional, and now, continuing on with the whole appeasement of the muslim group, they basically shut down the course, fired lt. colonel matthew dempsey from the position, and then ordered what was called a negative oer. which is an officer evaluation report. what is really troubling, up until this time. lt. colonel dooley, who was a 1994 graduate of the united states military academy at west point. he served as an aide-de-camp
8:24 am
of three separate generals and his entire career has been characterized by outstanding performance and they've indicated he should be be promoted. he has unlimited potential. >> peter: let's talk about his promotion. his promotions are going to be blocked as a result of this. >> yes. >> peter: and your organization has taken a very strong position against general dempsey. you basically say he is advocated to the forces of sharia and islam in the world in not allowing lt. colonel dooley to teach at joint chiefs school. is that correct? >> that's correct. we see the political correctness permeating the upper echelons of the military throughout. apparently we have not learned our lessons from the fort hood massacre and now we attempt to appease these muslim organizations and in doing stow, we are jeopardizing our national security. one middle east expert said that the final defense against
8:25 am
jihadist, the pentagon, has now capitulated and is teaching our military in accordance with the muslim brotherhood teachings. so, if he we don't have a strong military. and i think, peter, we have to understand that the course he was teaching was not the college freshman, it was a course of upper echelon military officers, lt. colonels and colonels and the purpose of this course was to engage in dynamic decision to think the unthinkable, to expect the unexpected because these officers one day will find themselves in the position of a nuclear attack on let's say the city of new york and if the president turns to this officer and says what should be our response and this officer can't say give me two weeks and i'll come back to you, this officer has to have a response. and that's what lieutenant matthew dooley was-- >> and we've asked the army for a response and haven't gotten it. we'd appreciate it if you keep track on this going forward

8:54 am
>> clayton: yeah, now you were in the aircraft next to this plane so you were controlling with he remote control this aircraft as it was coming down. now, how did you make it crash? what specifically? we've heard different crash scenarios right upon takeoff or mid flight. what happened in this particular crash that you guys created? >> we were simulating a crash on final approach with the landing, which is quite often where an accident will happen. so, we set up a normal rated descent on the approach and approximately 800 feet we pulled all the power to idle on aircraft and more after hard landing than a nosedive and that's typically how an aircraft will impact. >> so, here are some numbers for you, the plane desdended about 1500 feet per minute and crashed on the desert area you were testing it on at about 140 miles per hour with 15 crash test dummies inside of
8:55 am
the aircraft that you'd placed strategicically throughout the aircraft. what did you find from the crash test dummies after the results. >> when you get briefed before each flight that impact position where you're bent over, really does make a difference. we had one dummy in the position, and one just sitting up straight. and the dummy sitting up straight had, probably had a concussion, possibly fatal, and also spine damage as well. >> the passengers in the first class rows, one through seven, what happened to those individuals? >> well, they -- the scientists asked us for three survivability zones, fatal, catastrophic, injuries, and then, walk away. and it actually progressed through the aircraft, so, first class was the fatal section. >> clayton: you would have thought maybe that would have been, first class, right? and that turns out to be the
8:56 am
worst class apparently. and those in the middle of the plane you say may have sustained injuries, broken ankles and concussions and passengers in the the back of the plane could have possibly walked away. how come on is it, when a plane crashes, we think that's it, nothing is going to happen. how much control would a pilot have in the situation? power is lost, they're descending quickly, 140 miles per hour, down to a crash area. and how much control would a pilot have to be able to pull out of this to give at least a little bit of a minimal impact here? >> well, the key is to maintain your energy and do you that by pointing the nose down. it's much like what captain sullen burger did in the hudson river, he kept the nose down and then you trade that energy, the air speed, to break your rate of descent and put it in a survivable mode. and most people think that
8:57 am
most people perish in an aircraft incident and that's not the case. most survive. >> clayton: the show is curiosity plane crash. it will be on the discovery channel tonight at 9 p.m. eastern time and the discovery channel always doing great stuff. and chip, great to see you this morning and thanks to bringing this to us, we appreciate it. >> well, thank you. >> clayton: and coming up on the show, mitt romney rising up in the polls days after the first presidential debate. will this momentum last through election day? scott rasmussen is here to break down the numbers. he made the ultimate sacrifice and a navy seal honored in a special ceremony. we're going to speak to his we're going to speak to his parents coming up. captioned by closed captioning services, inc.

>> good morning, again, everyone. thanks so much for joining us. thanks to peter johnson jr. for filling in. 30 days left. get your calendars and mark the days off. >> get out the abacus to count down. if you believe, it's only 30 days left. we went through the primary, who the candidates are going to be and now it's down to this. president obama was handed a bit of a golden nugget on friday with these new jobs numbers. so he's of course taking to the airwaves saturday morning to play up the 7.8% unemployment number. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past two and a half years. friday we learned the unemployment rate is at the lowest level since i took office. more americans are entering the workforce, more americans are
9:02 am
getting jobs. >> governor mitt romney was very quick to remind everybody that it's been president obama, not president bush, for the last four years. and he fired back on the economy. >> he got a chance to explain his jobs program, how he's going to create new jobs in america. did you hear what he had to say? i didn't either. i kept looking for a specific plan on what he was going to do to create jobs. i heard more of the same, stimulus, hiring government workers, those things 0 don't create jobs they cost jobs. >> the obama administration hammering the romney campaign about tax loopholes and deductions. back and forth on specifics. >> absolutely. lots of people expressed skepticism about that unemployment number coming down to 7.8, or at least confusion. how could employers have said they hired 114,000 people
9:03 am
whereas americans said 873,000 said they got new jobs. governor huckabee came on our show yesterday and talked about americans don't want to crunch the numbers. that isn't where their minds are. they're on their wallets and if food is more expensive. in 2009, a gallon of gas was $1.84. today on average, and it's higher in many places than this average of $3.84. in california, number $6. gas station owners are getting a run on, meaning people are running up and filling their tanks, worried it's going to be higher. governor huckabee said people vote on things that are tangible to them and how their neighbors respond to things and gas prices. >> they look at gas prices.
9:04 am
when they squeeze the handle on the pump, they know they're paying nearly 4 and 5 bucks a gallon. when they get a paycheck, they know it's less than it used to be. food prices are up, it costs more to go to school and they know the kids just getting out of college are living in the basement. they want to get rid of them. >> as mitt romney pointsous, he says the median income is $4,300 in america during president obama's presidency. people do feel that. >> stick around for another six minutes and we'll have the freshest, hot off the presses, poll numbers from scott rasmussen for you. >> we begin with a fox news alert. the commuter train that slammed into a semi truck in california. this happened after the truck stalled on the tracks. the train was filled with more than 200 people and three of those passengers were hurt. luckily their injuries are

clayton, you wonder about getting your plants inside. the first real freeze of the season across the ohio valley, parts of michigan and pennsylvania. tonight into tomorrow morning, very cold night and it might be the end of growing season for a lot of people. as you wake up, you see this cold pocket into the northern plains. 23 in rapid city, 28 in denver. cold air across texas. in texas, you're not going to warm up much today as the sun shines because the temps are so cold. this rain is bringing scattered showers towards the mid-atlantic. the northeast, light showers and not scattered. not big problems for the day. across the west, a ton of sunshine. we're in a very dry stretch in the northwest. the pattern continues. we have had .23 inches of rain.

the new polls show mitt romney getting a post-debate bounce. according to rasmussen poll he's at 49%, president obama at 47%. is it a sign the debate changed the race and will romney's momentum last? >> joining us is scott rasmussen of russ mussen reports. nice to see you. >> great to be with you. these are the first national polling results based entirely on interviews after the debate. before the debate president obama was up by 2 points, 49-47. a net change of fours points. it's not as if the race is upside down but a small swing can have an impact. >> let's look at the president's -- this this is they
9:13 am
tracking poll. >> we want to get to a new poll you haven't posted on the website yet. that's how hot off the press it is. this is the president's approval rating. explain that. here's the new poll. 50% approve of the job president obama has done. 49% disprove. that's ticked up as we understand it. explain the sub text here. >> that's right. it's gone from 49% in the morning in the debate to 50% day. it's curious that the horse race goes in romney's favor but the job approval inches one point in obama's direction. both camps could spin this positively. president obama could say this means people haven't given up. we could win the voters back. if you're the romney team, you say this tells us that there was something gained by people get to go like mitt romney more or perhaps see him as a plausible
9:14 am
president. mitt romney is in better shape. in the romney story line is true, that may have a lasting impact. >> it's interesting his job approval goes up following the terrible debate. also interesting are the swing states of course. these are the new swing state polls and we're looking at these now for the first time. florida, ohio and virginia. what are we seeing? before it looked like a sizeable lead for obama. not so much anymore. >> the swing states are close because the national polls are close. mitt romney up by two in florida, one in virginia. still trails by a point in ohio. of all the swing states, ohio is the most interesting because it is where president obama is outperforming national numbers. it is his firewall. >> scott, you have experience in polling. is there any way to predict if this is a temporary bounce for mitt romney or if this is
9:15 am
endure. >> sometimes you just have to wait for the next round of polls to come out. we don't know. i could make the case either way. >> let's dive more specifically, scott. i saw headlines maybe from literal polling places this week saying that these numbers we were seeing in swing states weren't necessarily representative of a swing to votes for mitt romney, more of republican enthusiasm on the increase. republicans who watched the debate, perhaps, and were finally enthusiastic about mitt romney. what do you say to that? >> unaffiliated voters are moving romney's direction. we don't know if that will last but he has a sizeable lead. it's also true there's a jump in enthusiasm. a lot of republicans more excited about the race than three days ago. they've consistently been more enthusiastic than democrats and that impacts turnout. four years ago only 32% of
9:16 am
voters who went to the polls were republicans. i expect that to be maybe 4 points, 3 or 4 points higher that time because of that enthusiasm. >> scott, if this is a post-debate bounce for mitt romney, when would it taper off? >> within the next few days. you've got to remember the president had a jobs report come out friday that helped him. i don't think it will impact consumer confidence or the race but within the next couple days we'll get a sense of how much of this bounce is lasting. then of course we have paul ryan and joe biden in their debate then the president and mitt romney the week after. >> historically when you look at these numbers, do you ever see a bounce as a result of the vice presidential debates. in joe biden vs. sarah palin. did it do anything. >> no but the mccain obama debates didn't change anything.
9:17 am
wet the wall street meltdown before the debates. that was the defining event of the race and nothing moved after that. president obama was steadily ahead the last 40 days. vice presidential debates typically don't have much impact. the obama campaign you hope for a story line to get you away from talking about first presidential debate. >> scott rasmussen, we appreciate you giving us the first bite at that apple. thanks so much for showing us and obviously we'll talk to you a lot in the next 30 days. >> i look forward to it. >> he paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. that fallen navy seal being honored. >> a democratic lawmaker won't say the pledge of allegiance. she considers it a prayer. we'll talk to the politician to witnessed this ahead.

uss michael murphy was commissioned in new york can yesterday in honor of a brave navy s.e.a.l. who gave the ultimate sacrifice. >> joining us are michael murphy's parents, dan and maw maureen. >> mrs. murphy, an incredible day yesterday. your son is the recipient posthumously of the medal of honor. now we have a destroyer named after him at pier 88 in the hudson river yesterday. tell us about the feelings that you have and you, mr. murphy, the overwhelming pride and also sadness you must be experiencing at this time. >> well, i'm proud and i'm honored to be the sponsor of the ship. and it's very personal to see your son's name up on a big
9:22 am
destroyer. michael was very humble but i think that he would be very happy because the crew and the captain of that ship, they're wonderful. they really are a great crew. and the captain is -- he's a very nice man and he's a good communicator. i think michael would be proud to witness this if he was here. >> mr. murphy, we know you're losing your voice. yesterday was probably a lot of talking for you. but it must have been overwhelming on some level, all of that. tell us your thoughts. >> it was a wonderful tribute to our son. you see all these great sailors and i kind of like to think that michael not only would be proud but that the ship my bear his name contains the spirit of 19 brave american heroes. the ship made sure that it
9:23 am
wasn't just about michael, it was about his team. so that within the ship itself, it displays each of the other 18, 19 heroes. 18 who lost their life and of course the lone survivor, marcus latrelle. >> in your book, seal of honor, you chronicled that event and the spirit of these brave americans including michael murphy. tell us a little bit about how michael continued to return fire even after he was wounded, continued to radio for help and proved to be the best of the very best. >> i think that all came from his leadership ability. he was the leader of the team. all the members of the team looked to him for leadership. and i think he just took it upon himself inately if something was with going to be done, he would have to do it and he stepped up
9:24 am
and did it. >> it was important to him to bear the symbols of 9/11. i understand he wore the patch of a fire company in zant engine company 53, ladder company 43. in fact when they recovered michael, they cut that patch out of his uniform, cleaned it, an presented it to the firehouse. it now sits on their wall up at 102nd and third avenue. it's a true honor. there's a very close connection between the s.e.a.l. community and the fdny. >> we've heard so much about michael's bravery. tell us about your son. >> he was a great boy. he was kind. he was a really good friend to people. if he was your friend, he was your friend for life no matter what kind of -- if you needed him, he would be there. if you got broke down states
9:25 am
away, he would be in the car helping out. >> he was kind of for the underdog, mr. murphy. if he saw someone who was getting picked on or someone that needed help, even as a little boy, that he would intervene. he was courageous in that way. >> absolutely. moan -- he was known at murph the protecter. i don't know why but if someone was being picked on, there was something wrong, he would be the first to say wait a second, this isn't the way it should be done. i sum michael up by saying he always seemed to do the right thing at the right time for the right reasons. and that was reflected in his whole life so that people who surrounded him knew that and so they knew they could always rely on michael to do the right thing at the right time for the right reasonses. >> maureen, you sure must have done something right. i have a young son and i hear
9:26 am
stories of your son, and i just wonder what you guys did from the time that he was a little guy to create that. >> he -- you know, i always taught him -- we always taught him nobody's better than you but nobody's underneath you. treat people the way you want to be treated. you have to love kids enough to say no. it's easy to say yes. if they're doing something that they're not supposed to do, nip it in the bud and say no. he really was very easy to raise. he was such a good boy. >> he smiled so broadly in talking about him. when his name is mentioned, it's wonderful. >> he's my boy. >> he'll always be your boy. >> he grew up to be a very fine man. he really did. >> that's an understatement, let me say most respectfully. >> i have to say what he did that day to save his other men, that didn't surprise me at all because he was like that since
9:27 am
he was like that big. >> gary, we understand you were part of a documentary screened last night about this story. tell us more. >> well, in seal of honor we documented it -- it's well-documented in the media, about what michael did the last few days of his life. what we tried to do in murph the protecter was to define and give people a real understanding of who he was as a little boy growing up and at his -- during his college years at penn state. everything was just kind of an evolution. i think that the filled auditorium last night got a good understanding of everybody reads that and says, geez, i wonder if i could do something like that. push come to shove, could i do that? i think what it did was added the natural evolution that when they got done watching that, they said yeah, now we
9:28 am
understand why he did what he did. >> well, on this sunday, mr. and mrs. murphy, you give us hope, courage and faith in the great american spirit and we can't thank you enough that you had your boy and sharing your story. >> author of s.e.a.l. of honor, we appreciate talking to you. >> brand-new details on the investigation into the four americans murdered at our consulate in libya. we have a live update in moments. >> if you make a mistake on the field, your coach makes you take a lap. now one state says that's equal to corporal punishment. your emails on this topic coming up next.

welcome back to "fox & friends." do you remember high school? for some like alisyn it was only yesterday. in gym class you weren't paying attention, the gym teacher would say go run a lap or the coach would say run a lap. >> one high school in iowa is considering doing away with the policy because there was a a coach who abused it, made a guy do more than a lap. run hill sprints without a water
9:33 am
break so the entire school system of high school are deciding they think that doing a lap could constitute corporal punishment. here's what the iowa girls high school athletic union director said. good common sense indicates we're past using conditioning and running in a punitive matter. it's almost vindictive in nature. >> i laid out earlier the arguments on both sides in a cogent, cohesive, compelling way and we have emails from people -- i have tweets too. wade says i was 265 pounds in high school, my football coach made me run two miles just to warm up. i survived. i wish he was here now to get me in shape. i guess he didn't get him in shape. >> that's not the punishment. the punishment is we're going to do these drills and, hey, clayton, you didn't do the drill properly so run a lap as punishment.
9:34 am
>> right. let's hear what allen says, the kids respect this that there was meaningful consequences t works as a deterrent in a positive way without anger. he's in agreement with the drop and give me 20. >> lauren in texas writes if taking lapse is punishment, isn't playing the game that involves running a punishment? stupid he says. >> glen says what's wrong with asking a player to do something he should be doing anyway. ashley says it shouldn't be up for discussion. why are you giving attention to something so outrageous. >> i have an idea. keep the running a lap in place but let them take a water break. >> drop and give me 20. drop and give me 20 right now. >> do we have it? reminds us of animal house. remember this? maybe not that severe. >> you're all worthless and weak. drop and give me 20.
9:35 am
>> calling them worthless and weak. >> i've come up with my decision, the kids need to run. >> okay. but do you like the water break idea or is that too wussy. >> there could be cardiograms, electrolytes, rest, naps, few to knows. >> now you're speaking my language. >> let us know how you feel. the house oversight committee schedule to hear from the u.s. consulate in libya as congress investigators that terrorist attack that killed our embassador. >> peter doocy is live with the details. >> lieutenant colonel andy wood is a green beret with the utah national guard and he was the head security official at the u.s. consulate in benghazi as the leader of the special forces

9:37 am
september 11 backing up his case. this is all part of a u.s. government wide investigation into the terror attack. we heard from the secretary of defense about the status of that investigation and about the arrests of two tunisian men in turkey in connection with the attack. he said yesterday it's too soon so tell if these arrests, these men, are connected to al-qaeda. >> we're doing everything possible to make sure that we go after those who were involved in the attack in libya. as the president has said, our goal is to make sure we bring those involved to justice. >> we expect to hear a lot more details about this security failure in libya as these congressional hearings kick off in a few days. >> absolutely. thank you so much. let's go to the rest of the headlines. seven people have died from that rare fungal meningitis outbreak and more than 60 others are sick. the outbreak spreading across

welcome back. his message of hope and change helped bring young voters in 2008 but youth engagement for this election is down 17% in 18
9:45 am
to 29-year-olds. what's causing this malaise is perhaps jimmy carter might have said. how will it impact the outcome of the this election. >> "wall street journal" columnist daniel henninger joins us. what happened to the youth enthusiasm? >> they lost their jobs. the pew research center shows only 18% of them are deeply engaged in this election. the more telling number is that only 50% are certain their registered to vote, which is the lowest number pugh has measured in 16 years. >> the enthusiasm is down. is it reflected in the fact they lost their jobs or can't find jobs? >> or can't find very good jobs. they've been hurt hard. while the inemployment rate is 8%, their unemployment rate has been twice that. the most interesting thing that came out was the study at the
9:46 am
labor market in center. in april they did a deep dive in the kind of jobs people had and discovered it totals up to 53% of young people are unemployed or underemployed, college graduates taking jobs you only need a high school education to hold. what's interesting is that in that big unemployment number that we got on friday, 7.8%, they said 800,000 new jobs, about 500,000 of those are part-time jobs which suggests a lot of people are going into the underemployment pool. >> it's particularly bad for young people because tuition keeps going un. expo -- exponentially. we talked about how expensive universities are, so kids are getting from both ends. >> they are. it must be just shattering to get out of college -- a lot of kids work hard in high school to get into college and do well in college then get out and can't get a job commensurate with
9:47 am
their skills. the reason for that is because really it's the low growth rate we've had for four years, 1.5%, historically in the united states it's been 3%, you need 3% to provide good jobs. >> let's talk politics. this is fascinating. in your piece for the "wall street journal," you say young are the sure losers but who will they vote for? i thought if they're not going to vote for president obama, the enthusiasm as dropped, surely the romney campaign has picked up some of those voters now. you say needless to say, mitt romney is not picking up what barack obama has lost. >> that's right. in recessions young people go with the idea you need a safety net or subsidies. i have been saying it's terrible that so few of them are paying attention. i think the romney camp ought to reach out to them. the election is not about which guy you like more than the
9:48 am
other, it's which one is saying things that's going to get that economy back to are a growth rate that will give you a good job. >> that's the answer and it doesn't seem either camp is cultivating them. >> obama has taken them for granted and most reports we get on campus is that their enthusiasm for him has fallen off. he needs them to show up to vote. but neither camp is appealing to those voters. >> obama looks like they've shifted to other demographics to make up for the lack of enthusiasm. the latino population and others. >> the minorities, they think they've got them. as you've seen, after that debate, we've had a reset in this eltion. i think all of these campaigns are going to have to go out and hit those groups that they haven't talked to up to now. >> 30 days. >> daniel, thank you so much. coming up, one lawmaker
